We called into the Winslow at lunchtime to see Snouty, he has been celebrating for days since calling the Our Jack move to Sitteh. Our Jack has said that discussions had been going on for three weeks, Snouty said he had known for four!
Anyway Lonely of Walton was missing at the barmaid told us that he said he was off to see The Farm. A phone call later and he confirms what every paper is full of this morning. We are on the verge of signing Caen striker M'Baye Niang ('M' to his mates) and that he has seen him drive through the gates at our training ground.
M'Baye Niang, a 17-year-old who has made two appearances for France Under-21s, has been subject of a failed £5m bid from The Arse and has also been linked with Sitteh and Spurs - and he's at Finch Farm!
'M' played 30 games for Caen last season scoring 5 goals. He has played twice for France U21's scoring one goal and can play up front or out wide.
Has Snouty got this one right? Watch this space.
